Question Skymaster landing gear parts

Broke the landing gear on my F-15 .
Where can I get a brake pad and axle? By Pad, I'm talking about the friction plate that pushes against the hub. I still have the inflatable part(for lack of a better term)
I believe this is an early version of their F-15 if that makes a difference.
Thanks

AFAIK, all the Skymaster gear setups are engineered and manufactured by one guy. I got a seal set for my F-14 but the only was to get ahold of Anton and it takes awhile.

Well, actually yes I did think of emailing Skymaster. But as stated above, might take some time. I wasn't sure if there were dealers around that stocked spare parts or not which might be quicker for me.

I had to get a new torque link for my SM F-15 and I got them directly through Skymaster.

I emailed them so I'll wait and see. Hopefully hear from them soon.

As mentioned get in contact with John. They have sent me parts direct and i have received them just as quickly as I would have if they were sent locally

So John did get back to me. These are older parts they don't make anymore and is requesting I buy new brakes. I only need the friction plate and axle (axle I can probably fabricate myself)
Anyone have spare parts out there?

What a crock of BS. SM has changed so much. I tried getting parts for my F-16 gear and they did not want to sell me any, instead they wanted me to send the gear to them for fixing. Right....because shipping back and forth to China is sooooo worth it (throw up emoji here).

I can honestly say try Fly Eagle brake pads. My SM F-16 gear is a carbon copy of FEJ (or viceversa) and all parts were interchangeable, even the brake pads.

Good luck!

I think I have some old brake pads I could send to you to see if they are compatible. PM me your address if interested.

Yeah, I'd probably get new wheels and brakes from Dreamworksrc.
